Just got back from reading to Aidan all the great cards that have been sent to him the past two days. Here is the latest:

Aidan is completely off the Dopamine and his blood pressure is completely normal! This is huge because it will allow him to get the MRI tomorrow. They continue to wean the sedation and anti-seizure medications; he should be completely off the Versed by morning, but not sure on the Fentanyl.

When Erin was in the room earlier, she got to help the nurses in bathing him and changing the bed sheets. At one point in moving Aidan so the sheets could be changed, she saw him trying to cough while ventilated. This is a good thing, as it means he is responding to movement. Any sign of something like this is excellent.
